My husband and I are going for an early 25th anniversary trip in Oct. We will be married 25 years in June. It's been 12 years since we've been there. Any ideas to make this trip even more special?

I am going to Disney for my honeymoon and I am 26. It is not just a place for kids. I have been 7 times throughout my life and I love it. Each and every time I discover something different. Sounds like some of you need to go and while your there maybe Mickey can pull that stick out of your ass.

Just because people like Disney and go without their kids does not mean they need to grow up and that they don't live in the real world. I go once a year (yes I have a 5 year old but before that my family went yearly anyways) and we don't have to take out loans or anything to go. Those that go often enough know when to go to get the best deal and how to plan to get the most out of the trip. We go in Sept for free dining so we don't have to worry about money for the food and we get to go to the restaurants that we wouldn't get to go if we paid outta pocket. You are the ones that needs to grow up and live in the real world and realize just how mean you sound and I hope your kids don't grow to have your attitude like this to people cause you are nothing but a bully. I know when I'm at Disney I'm happy it's a happy place for a lot of people and I forget about the worries I have or problems at home for week it's nice to have that some people don't and for you to make fun of people enjoying themselves is just wrong. I agree I hope I never run into you at the parks cause you would have to make fun cause I have my mickey ears and I wear them proudly and I even get my nails done with Disney theme for my Vacation.

The food and wine festival is awesome for adults, it's the closest I've been able to get to traveling the world. Europe, is my dream. Luckily Epcot is an hour away, so I can enjoy a little fantasy.

You should update your "best times to go" not to include early through mid-October. More and more schools are going to the "balanced calendar" and kids get off two weeks in fall, tow at Christmas and two in spring. We went last October and it was nearly as busy as summer.

Yes, some of us DO wait in lines for character meet and greets and character meals. Some of us enjoy being able to be a kid now and again and have fun and laugh and be silly. Some of us aren't miserable human beings who can't find their inner child and embrace it. Disney World isn't for everyone, but who the hell are you to judge others for their ability to enjoy such a wonderful and happy place as adults?! Just because you can't enjoy things that require the ability to embrace your inner child doesn't mean that others are less than you or have to pull out a mortgage to afford a Disney vacation. I love Disney, always have. I'm going for my honeymoon and I couldn't be more excited! I'm going to embrace those hats, stand in line to meet my favorite characters, and enjoy my character meals with my husband who will be enjoying it just as much as I will be. You honestly just seem to be one of those entitled people who thinks they are better than everyone else and who's views are the only ones that are correct. I'm not judging you for your vacation choice, whatever it was. I'm sure it was something that worked for you and your husband. But don't you dare go mocking others for the way they decided to spend their honeymoons, especially in such a happy and fun way as going to Disney. So you can't put aside your pride long enough to wear a pair of ears, fine. But I can and so can many others. I can't wait to wear that Minnie Mouse veil and to see my husband wear his Mickey Mouse top hat! It will be a wonderful and happy start to our marriage and it will be perfectly us in every way. Just because you don't like something, doesn't mean you can put others down for enjoying it. I hope you're teaching your children that. It would be good to set that sort of example for your children by following that rule of mutual respect.

We went for our honeymoon in August 2014. I could
Not have asked for a better experience. We chose
Boardwalk for location. We were upgraded to a suite
With concierge level service including food and drinks.
We wore the ears the whole time because we figured it
was our only opportunity, so why not? We got a lot of
cute character buttons and were treated well by
many cast members, one even went into a storage area
to find is the retired "just married" Cinderella buttons.
I would highly recommend Disney as a Honeymoon
Destination. Of course, there are lots of great
destinations for Honeymoons. Everyone should
Do what they love (we love parks and coasters)
and what is meaningful to them as a couple!

Why did you even read this if you're so convinced that Disney is not a honeymoon destination. Who are you to tell people how to spend their money? Troll.

hooray! Our honeymoon destination in 1977 was the magic kingdom. We started going back when the youngest was 3 in 89. We still go most every year without kids.

We are going for our honeymoon thus year 2015. We never got to have a honeymoon due to the military (we were both in) now we are going. No reason to be judgy. We called the 1800 number and they helped us out since we figured out we were going in February. We are very excited to go and the Disney team was so helpful. They put it on our account that it was our honeymoon and we have a special treat for our room when we get there!

In reply to by Visitor (not verified)

I'm sure you can book the room more than a year in advance and sign up for the honeymoon registry at a later date...

Also you're extremely judgmental and I hope I never run into you at a Disney park because I have a feeling that simply looking at you would ruin my vacation.

Disney can be fun for adults too. My second most favorite trip to Disney was just my husband and myself. We did not wait in line for princess autographs - but we did ride all the rides we wanted to ride, and saw all the shows we wanted to see, and ate some good food. My most favorite trip was this past Christmas with my grandchildren! Disney is a blast with kids but adults can have fun there too!!!

My husband and I went on our honeymoon back in 2007. We also got engaged in Epcot. We do not have children and go 3 times a year, we have the DVC. There is so much to do without children, especially during wine and food and flower show! We would rather do to WdW then sit on a beach all day!

Cast members do their best to provide the best experience possible for each guest who comes to the resort but honestly getting mad at the cast members in entry level positions is unfair to them. They do the best with the magic they are provided.

There was no WDW when my husband went on our honeymoon to California, but we went to Disneyland. We took our kids to WDW every other year (sometimes more, and continued to vacation there when they were adults. The last time we all went as a family my daughter was pregnant with her first baby. My husband passed away a year later, just before the two of us were supposed to go to WDW. I've been taking each grandchild for their sixth birthday present, and will be taking the last two this Christmas time. It is a magical place for our family. Maybe not so much for others, but who am I to make a judgment on what someone else likes. What a boring world it would be if everyone liked the same thing. I'm sure the person who made the nasty comment about honeymooning Disney goers doesn't like many other differences in people. Not the kind of person I'd like to hang with, for sure.

Standing ovation on that remarkably accurate comment. My fiancé and I are planning our honeymoon at Disney world, we couldn't be more thrilled. The service provided by Disney and its cast members are bar none. We don't expect the red carpet rolled out everywhere we go...

WDW opened Oct 7, 1971 so yes it was open. I was married in 1986 and had a wonderful 10 day honeymoon at WDW staying at the Polynesian. At that time they did not have buttons to say what special event you were celebrating but everywhere we had meals or shows, we were given special attention or a little extra gift (such as small cake, a card from the fab five and even a bottle of champagne in our room). Our cost was budgeted to a certain amount, no matter where we would have gone to. (No we also did not wear bride and groom Mickey Ears) But we had the best time !! Disney is not just for kids and everyone has their own opinion . Do what you like to do and don't put down others who like different things. I enjoy Disney still and go now with my husband of 28 yrs, 3 grown children and my 1 year old grandson. I have also been to Disneyland a few times and on the Disney cruise which is outstanding. Don't get me wrong I also been to your real world places like Hawaii, San Diego, Bahamas, Grand Canyon, etc but stepping out of real world and visiting a fantasy world with pixie dust and having dreams and wishes is a great vacation too :)

Why rain on someone's parade? You're there enjoying the mouse your way - let others enjoy it their way.

prehaps it was their attitude of entitlement that was showing so loudly ....

In reply to by Visitor (not verified)

I went to Disney World for my Honeymoon back in 1979! There was only the Magic Kingdom back then and no buttons! But there was a basket in our room and we got a free dessert with our dinner. We went back every 3 years because of the wonderful experience. Husband died 12 years ago, husband number 2 made his first trip last year...we're going back next year. All because I was treated so well all those many years ago.

Disney World wasn't there in 1974

I went to Disney World for my honeymoon in 1974. It was my 2 trip and my new husband's first. It was magical even back then! 40 years later, and 12 trips I'm still looking forward to my next trip in February with my teenage son. The magic never gets old.

Me and my wife had our honeymoon at Disney World in February of 2008. The staff treated us great and went above and beyond for us. They upgraded our hotel from a regular room to a 1 bedroom villa for free. The hotel concierge got us tickets for cirque de sole that were not available. They had a diver bring a sign to the glass we were sitting next to at the coral reef restaurant congratulating us on or wedding. that is not even everything they did to make sure that we had a great time. We go to Disney 1x every 3 months on Average [we have been pass holders since just before our wedding].

Frankly I don't see the point as an adult, would much rather go to Universal. I was a Disney Kid we took our kids 2 years ago and when they were 7 and they were bored.

In reply to by Visitor (not verified)

why go to Disney World if Disney Land is closer? Perhaps the staff sensed people ready to tear them apart from the get go and never be satisfied.

In reply to by Visitor (not verified)

My husband and I went for our honeymoon this year and no we didn't have to take out a second mortgage. We spent less than the average person spends on a wedding let alone a honeymoon. There were lots of adults there without children having fun and enjoying the sites and atmosphere. It is magical at any age or haven't you seen any of their commercials advertising that with grandparents going without any children or grandchildren. Everybody is friendly and wearing the wedding mickey and Minnie ears gets employees and guests to tell you congratulations!

You're just jealous.

In reply to by Visitor (not verified)

You are a very bitter and vindictive person. Just because it's not something you would personally do, don't insult others that take enjoyment from it. I feel very sorry for you.

To the person who said why the hell would you go on honeymoon to disneyworld. We go for our anniversary (without kids- and be respectful for people who can't have kids, but still enjoy the magic of Disney) you tell us to get a life and live in the real world...I feel sorry for you that you can't suspend "real life" for a short time and enjoy a place meant for everybody from the young to the young at heart......DisneyFan Forever!

It is so sad of all the insults and name calling Disney is a magical place. It's to bad that people don't understand we all have our own opinions,not everyone agrees all the time but no need for insults.

In reply to by Visitor (not verified)

Hubby and I went for our Honeymoon in 2007. We go back every year. There is more to do than character greetings. Disney does a great job in ensuring that there are many things that appeal to the adult crowd....you just have to do a little researching to find them. Truly anything you can dream of is possible at WDW! Oh and we can afford our yearly trips without taking out a mortgage on the house. Don't be so simple minded. You need to not be so insulting, do some soulsearching, talk to god, and figure out why you are so judgemental. Jealous much?

Obviously someone had never been the The California Grill in the Contemporary....

In reply to by Visitor (not verified)

We 'the hell' wanted to go for our honeymoon, thanks very much. We go back for anniversaries too. And who says you can't have fun at Disney without the kids along? Oh..and the ears are great fun. Sorry you have to be such a spoil sport.

Line forms to the left for Fun at Disney lessons!!
See you there!! (We'll be the ones with the goofy ears. Or maybe the Minnie ears. Mickey, Pluto......)

What is the point of talking down or making fun of someone on an online forum? You are a troll. Get a life.

My hubby and I went to Disney World for our honeymoon last December and we loved it. It was my second trip to Disney and my husbands fifth. The buttons did get a little attention, a few congrats but not much else. We had dinner at the Yachtsmen Steakhouse our first night there and it was amazing. Our waiter was fantastic, the best dining experience we have ever had. I wish I could remember his name!! We stayed in a one room villa at Saratoga Springs and the staff there were very nice. I love the beach and always pictured my honeymoon in a tropical destination with white sand beaches and blue ocean but I have to say that I was NOT disappointed in any aspect of our trip and we are already planning the next one!

In reply to by Visitor (not verified)

So when your kids are grown, you don't plan to go back?!?!?

I went 22 years ago this November on my Honeymoon and we continue to come with our TEENAGE kids now. We are a true Disney family and we will continue to visit when our kids our grown. (And hopefully go with our grandkids)!

In reply to by Visitor (not verified)

There are actually many reasons to go to Disney as an adult without children. The restaurants there are some of the best in the world, there is great night life and shopping. The attention to detail in the parks means there is always more to see than you think, finding new and interesting things to see is limitless. And on top of all that you get to ride world class rides without worrying if your kid is too tall to get on or if they will be scared. Sharing those experiences with another adult on your honeymoon or not is completely different than going with kids.

We went on our honeymoon on April 2010 and we had the best week of our lives! We wore the buttons and the hats and the staff made sure our to make our experience the most magical one. We did not wait in line for most of the rides, and even tough we did not have dinner reservations, most restaurants went out of their way to even set up aan additional table for us. For example, at Epcot, the French restaurant set up a table for us at the last minute, along side the window that oversees the bay, and treated us with a complementary wine bottle while we watched the fireworks show. AMAZING! Those that are kids at heart will really enjoy honeymooning at Disney.

Hahaha...sure, make fun of me. How do you know where I went? How do you know it was a beach? Maybe I went to Europe. Or Alaska.

Some of you Disney people are just WAY over the top. Grow up....I don't see the draw of Disney to adults by themselves. Do you people wait in line for character autographs and attend character dining? Such losers....go ahead..."dip yourself in pixie dust and wish upon a star." Learn to live in the real world. Half of you probably have to take out a second mortgage to fund your yearly Disney trips. I suppose you believe in rainbow glitter shitting unicorns too?

In reply to by Visitor (not verified)

Clearly someone needs to wish upon a star for a better attitude :)!! What's wrong with wanting to have a magical honeymoon? Someone hand me the Minnie Mouse veil and dip me in pixie dust! Disney or bust!

In reply to by Visitor (not verified)

Wow, judgmental much? What a terrible person you are.

Well Jesus not everyone wants to go to some boring beach resort and lay around and get fat eating all day. Some people like the parks and love Disney and that's what they choose. It's not your place to judge them and especially not to make fun of them. How would you feel if I made fun of you for your choice of vacation? What a shallow-minded person you are.

It says right in the first paragraph of #5 that you can't book more than a year in advance to make use of the honeymoon registry. Therefore, your point that they booked more than a year in advance is not valid.

Not to mention, who the hell wants to go to Disney for their honeymoon? When we go (read: with our CHILDREN), we make fun of those goofy looking people walking around in the Micky ears top hat and Minnie ears veil. It's just strange....

In reply to by Visitor (not verified)

learn to spell.

When my daughter went they did not do this for them. Cast members sated nothing to her or her husband. The wilderness longe the people just agnored them and went to the next couple. There room was not what they asked for. They booked over a year in advance and were very disappointed. 10 days they could have gone to Disney land and had a better time for half the money spent.
